One 8-inch round loaf bread
2 tablespoons extra-virgin olive oil
1 pound ground beef
1/3 pound ground pork
1 teaspoon salt
1/4 cup Thousand Island dressing
6 large iceberg lettuce leaves, sliced or torn

Preheat the broiler.

Slicing horizontally through the middle of the bread, cut out a 1/2-inch-thick layer and discard, reserving the top and bottom layers.

Brush the cut sides with 1 tablespoon olive oil; broil until golden.

In a large bowl, combine the beef and pork.

Mix in the remaining 1 tablespoon olive oil and the salt.

Place on a plate and shape into a ball; flatten into a 9-inch patty.

Preheat a large skillet over medium heat.

Transfer the burger to the skillet and cook until browned on the bottom, about 4 minutes.

Using a large spatula, flip the burger and cook 3 to 4 minutes more.

Spread the dressing on the toasted bread bottom and top.

Slide the burger onto the bread bottom; top with the lettuce leaves and the bread top.

Cut into wedges to serve.
